Mensagem:  My director...OK (You have one director, and he...)

A director of mine...  OK  (I have more than one director, and one of them...)

Director of mine...  Not OK.  Almost anything is possible in life, and you may find a sentence in which you can say this, but it is a most  unusual construction.  You will hear in songs and read in poems "Pal of mine, love of mine", but those are not the greatest places to find standard English.  "Poetic license", remember?
